Vidyavanam Ashram – An Appreciation

Vidyavanam ashram, a work of the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate, is a place to attend to “the one thing necessary” of which Jesus speaks. That one thing necessary -- the transforming encounter with divine Wisdom -- is the animating purpose of the ashram. Vidyavanam means “Forest of Wisdom.” Its purpose is expressed in a variety of ways, all of which centre on silence and simplicity.
